Will you have one year of service before the baby is born? If so, 16 paid weeks. If not, 0 paid weeks

And doesn't really matter if they get annoyed. It is as much a benefit in exchange for your services as is your paycheck.

If you can get paid to not work, take the max amount of time.

You just need to decide going into this what it is you want from life. Then prioritize. There will never be enough time for everything. When you get overwhelmed cut stuff out of your life that is the lowest priority. Never sacrifice your long term happiness for what may seem prudent now.

As a partner told me, it's a benefit that the firm offers... take it.

Family comes first before anything else. Our culture is about people and if any of your senior or manager complains , yell your partner and people consultant. Don't feel bad if you are reproducing while other people (like me) can't b even find a date. Younger entitled if 16 weeks, on top you can take personal days , sick days and vacation days but I have heard cases where msyrrniyy leave ends upto 6 months.

Can I take my vacation days on top of maternity leave?

It's actually easier at staff level. Senior years are the busiest time.

Who cares if they get annoyed. Your and ur baby's health are irreplaceable, work is.

@OP Congratulations!!!! Stop worrying and focus on your baby! I just found out I'm expecting my second a year after I started! Yay! Nervous as it can be, but grateful and blessed!
